2007 Princeton Review #1 Party School is University of Texas - Austin.

Hook 'Em Horns!!

http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcont.../082206dntexutsurvey.20b9cf46.html

AUSTIN – The Texas Longhorns earned another national title Monday, not for football but as the country's best party school.

The University of Texas at Austin beat Penn State University, West Virginia University and last year's winner, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in the Princeton Review survey of 115,000 students at campuses around the country.

It topped the overall list – its first time atop the Princeton Review chart – by ranking second in the use of hard liquor, third in beer drinking and 13th in marijuana smoking.

For the ninth straight year, Brigham Young University was voted the most "stone cold sober" school.

The only thing SMU would rank for is the list of snobby kids who flaunt mommy and daddy's money at the bars  Smile

I went to Central Missouri State University an while I got drunk all the time and had a hell of a good time I would say that was on the lower end of party schools. That was because many people who went there lived in Kansas City, which being only 40 miles away, so they went home weekends. Although a bar in the town, Warrensburg, Missouri did make it onto Playboy's top 100 college bars.

Later I went to Southern Illinois University (the original in Carbondale) and that was one hell of a party town. It got so bad they had to close the school down during Halloween to stop potential rioting. I spent some time around University of Wisconsin, Lacrosse. Lacrosse is a beer drinking town and so was the school.

I think it is hard to judge one school being more of a party school than others. I can't say I ever saw anything more wild than what I saw at Southern Illinois. You really can't get much wilder, without killing yourself or others. Some just will not be because of the people that they attract, but most colleges and universities are loaded with partiers.

Different people party in different ways. A buddy of mine went to snobby upscale school and they had snobby parties with fancy drinks that some people would love. I hung out with a bunch of rusty truck driving rednecks and we drank cheap whisky, shot guns, drove old sad boats, and drank gallons of cheap beer. Some people wouldn't like that. I guess it is all in your tastes.

I had a friend who worked on this project years ago and he said they mainly sat around and just made it up. UT is most definitely a party school (just ask the Bush twins) but it isn't like there are many surprises on the list.

I'm actually surprised Arizona State U did not make the list. Those boys can throw down. Also, Southwest Texas State, or as it is now know as, Texas State University (the fightin' armadillos!) was a huge party school, and was on the top 10 list in the past.

Can I throw in a plug for my alma mater, Texas Lutheran University - small and proud. 1400 students and I bet we could outdrink any other school per capita. Go Bulldogs!

Lutherans are probably the most liberal of any of the Christian denominations. I knew many of the professors who loved to throw down and drink. That school really taught me how to work hard when it's time to work and party hard when it's time to party.

Fair enough. I guess I will just have to cross it off my list of colleges to think about attending after FSU (Fresno State University). CBU seems to still be high up there (California Baptist University). Man that would make it 3 colleges for me!  boggled  NTBI (New Tribes Bible Institute - Biblical Studies), FSU (Animal Nutrition), CBU (Missions/Theology). What did you major in HPLASops?

I got a marketing degree. Ironically, I hate marketing and really don't want to pursue a career in that field. I kinda wish I had gotten my degree in something else. Oh well, at least I have one, maybe someday I might make a real salary because of it.

I think UW - Madison got robbed. UT - Austin doesn't have a street parade where half of the football team gets arrested and halloween in Austin is about as exciting as an old folks' home. I'm surprised to see LSU ranked so "low." Those people can drink like fish...

I went to Hofstra University on Long Island. Although it wasn't a big party school, it was always known to be the school with the Most STD's in the northeast (Percentage wise). I don't know if this was just a myth but it is a fun stat to take around life.........I made it out clean by the way.
